FARM JAM 4 OLIVIA TO BENEFIT NEEDHAM MURDER VICTIM
OLIVIA BERGSTROM CHARITIES

Ayer, MA - On February 10, 2018, 20-year old Olivia Berit Bergstrom was brutally murdered in her Needham apartment - devastating her family and her community. Her loved ones continue to turn tragedy into action - raising thousands of dollars to support one of Olivia’s favorite non-profits, the Equine Rescue Network, as well as a scholarship in her name at her alma mater, Holliston High School. Those efforts continue this month with Farm Jam 4 Olivia.

Farm Jam 4 Olivia will take place Saturday September 29, 2018 from 4-8pm at the Top O’ the Hill Farm - 187 Old Groton Road in Ayer, Massachusetts. The event is a community concert featuring local musicians, a group jam session and open mic, yard games, and delicious food, all in a beautiful country farm setting.

Tickets are available via this PayPal link.

The event will include music by Darren Buck of Hank Wonder, Brian Costa, Tommy Ng of The Dingo Babies, David McCoy and Gina Adamson, Will Field and more.

All proceeds from the event will go directly to the Olivia Berit Bergstrom Scholarship award and the Equine Rescue Network

The event is made possible by Dover-Sherborn Regional High School friends of Olivia’s mother, Kirsten Bergstrom, who will come together to create something positive from this tragedy and support their friend in her time of need.

Donations to the Equine Rescue network can be made at: http://www.equinerescuenetwork.com/

Donations to the Olivia Berit Bergstrom Scholarship Awards can be made payable to:
Olivia Berit Bergstrom Memorial Trust
447 Marshall St
Holliston, MA 01746-1417
More about the scholarship award:
This award is given in memory of Olivia Berit Bergstrom, a 2016 graduate of Holliston High School. Olivia was a gentle spirit who had many passions in her life. She cared deeply about her family, friends, nutrition (veganism), art and animals. These interests gave her life direction and led her to pursue college degrees in art and nutrition, and to raise and nurture horses.

Unfortunately Olivia’s life was tragically cut short, but her spirit and love for helping others and caring for animals lives on.

In honor of her strength, dedication, and commitment to pursuing the things she held most dear, Olivia’s family would like to support other students in their endeavors to follow their passions. Scholarship applicants should explain
what their passion/motivation is, their lifestyle, work and/or volunteering they do to support their interest, and how they will continue this pursuit in college. These don’t have to be Olivia’s interests; her family wants to understand what gives each scholarship applicant the direction in their life, whatever that interest may be. Monies should be used for any post-graduate education or learning experience that fits the mission of the scholarship.

The Holiday Bells Were Ringing

by Chris Cain

"O Night Divine," one of the songs played during the Holiday Handbell Concert at the First Congregational Church, was an apt description of the entire experience. A cold clear winter's (Dec 1st is the start of meterological winter) night with the moon and stars visible in the sky set the mood for what was in store for all who attended the performance.
